The Shat's looked unwell for years - he's all bloated, like Elvis. I, for one, have no desire to see James T. Kirk looking like that. It's enough to know that Shatner originally played him. I just hope that The Shat rips off his rug for some T.V. movie he's in, or whatever else, like that. It would be so cool to just see him own his baldness, for once! Depending on how it was played, it could even be iconic ... seriously!
This bugs me too. Someone suggested that Shatner play Mudd instead of Kirk. That would be good for a laugh.
